Communication

As I was getting ready for work in the bathroom this morning, this is how I heard my children communicating togther:

C: Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
E ARGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH
L: [high pitched] AAAAAAAHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
C: STOP IT!!!!
E Argghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
L: [high pitched] AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
C: DON'T YOU DARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
E: DOOOoooooooooooooooooooN'T
L: [high pitched] AAAAHHRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGG

And on it went.

How tiresome is sibling rivalry? Very.

SPOOKY! I was going to do a VERY similar blog post, but I stopped when I realised that I didn't know how to spell any of the words! I see now how they are spelled.

Sadly, my blog post would be much longer. I'd just copy your text and go Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V until I thought it represented the length of time from school pickup until bedtime.

And in between the Ctrl-Vs, I'd have to insert a whole lotta "You're a bum-bum!" "No YOU'RE a bum-bum!" "You're a poo-poo-face!" "No YOU'RE a poo-poo-face!" etc.

And I'd lose every one of my remaining 8 readers.

But I loved your post, made me feel riiiight at home.

lol I can relate to those sounds. My girls get along most of the time but every now and then they try to test each other which can be quite stressful so I feel your pain.
